Description :

Your full-day ancient Rome walking tour is perfect for visitors who have only a short time in Rome but who want to see the very best of the city – past and present. Explore the history of this great empire on a Colosseum tour before racing back to the future on an adventure through its picturesque streets and piazzas, experiencing Rome as it is today on our popular Best of Rome Walking Tour.

We’ll kick-start our day with a skip the line Colosseum tour, bypassing long queues to gain access to this magnificent structure. Follow your English-speaking guide as they lead you to the best vantage points inside the Colosseum, telling you the stories and pointing out the details that bring an old ruin to life.

Our tour through Ancient Rome continues on to the Roman Forum, once the heart of the city where money sellers, butchers and barbers plied their trade and then on to Palatine Hill – the spot where it all started. Legend has it that this is where Remus and Romulus were raised by their wolf mother and where Romulus decided to found his empire. It’s also home to the city’s oldest ruins and its best views.

We’ll take a well-deserved break next for lunch in the historical center of the city. Your guide will recommend a spot or you can follow your nose to one of the countless trattorias and pizzerias around the area. Soak up the atmosphere before the next leg of our tour, a journey through the best of modern Rome.

With our energy up we’ll wander the streets of Rome, seeing the most famous sights – from the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and splendid Piazza Navona. Again your guide will bring historical sights from across the centuries to life with the stories and myths that make Rome quite unlike any other city in the world. Want to know why Raphael died so young? Or why there is one spot by the Trevi Fountain from where your view is completely obscured? Listen to your guide as they lead you on a trek that takes in the length and breadth of Rome’s historical center.
